Humans, crabs … no one gets to virtually survive for This Week in Games.
It’s all about making things blow up, disappear or tap out. That’s what’s on offer from the new video games this week, albeit in various forms. Fight Crab finally launches on Thursday, letting players fighting off other crabs in all sorts of stupid, insane environments. Why does a crab have Thor’s hammer? Why is there a crab on a Vespa? How is a crab able to wield a chainsaw in the first place? Stop asking silly questions and FIGHT.
Elsewhere, there’s Koei Tecmo’s Fairy Tail. Being a Koei Tecmo production, you can expect lots of JRPG-style turn-based combat action. It looks pretty good so far, if you’re into the series — there’s a chunk of gameplay below.
Beyond that, Destroy All Humans! is back with its anti-cow brand of humour. Crypto’s invasion of Earth is the kind of light-hearted humour a lot of us can use this week. There’s also Hellpoint, a grim, creepy Souls-like adventure with a bit of a Hellraiser touch.
